The C.A.R. Programme for schools
Workshop training to develop Confidence, Assertiveness & Resilience
The C.A.R. programme is a series of workshops devised specifically for girls in Years 8 & 9, to help develop the crucial personal skills of Confidence, Assertiveness & Resilience. As a charity, with a background of working successfully with schools since our inception in 2013, we believe it is important to offer such an initiative at a time when the challenges before young women have never seemed so great. Equally important, this is a foundation programme to help prepare for careers progression through the Gatsby Benchmarks; through it we intend to make girls “Gatsby- ready”.
The Foundation Programme
- offers three in-school, two-hour interactive workshops during a single term followed by a half day Saturday conference
- concentrates on building Resilience and developing the skills of Confidence & Assertiveness which underpin this
- focusses on Gatsby 3, 5 & 7 – individual student needs, encounters with both the world of work & tertiary education
Our workshops are led by professional trainers with a wealth of experience and real-life role-models from a wide range of careers and backgrounds.
We work closely with a limited number of partner schools across an academic year, with pre-agreed methods of working, reporting and evaluation. We offer this programme to participating schools free of charge.
